Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)

We will contribute to the Mozilla KPI by creating and enhancing relationships with developers. We currently have relationships with 3.4 million developers. We will create deeper relationships by creating developer web services and expand the number of quality relationships through learning activities, events, and strategic content work.

Our topline goal for 2015 that contributes to Mozilla’s organizational KPI is 4 million monthly MDN users with deeper relationships with our core participants.

We have specific goals that will help us drive that top level goal and will measure quality. By the end of 2015, we will target 3 levels of web (including mobile) developer:
